Saving money doesn't mean cutting out yummy desserts. There are lots of delicious dessert recipes that are simple and inexpensive to make for special occasions (or just whenever!)

Lemon Chiffon Dessert

Make angel food cake as directed on box.

Pour boiling water into jello mix, and stir well. Refrigerate about 10-15 minutes or until mix is thickened but not set.

Mix cold water with lemonade concentrate to make 2 cups.

Add this mixture to the jello mixture and blend until frothy.

Beat the whipped cream until firm, then add to jello mixture.

This sounds yummy. What a great summer recipe. I think I'll try it this weekend. Thanks for the recipe and all you tips on your blog. It's very good information, especially for people who don't think about the little things.

I made your cake recipe yesterday. It tastes really good, but I was a little confused when following the directions. I wasn't sure what size jello to use because it comes in 3 oz. and 6 oz. I used two 3 oz. packages. and then the lemonade directions were a little confusing also. I used 3 tablespoons of the frozen lemonade to make two cups. Not sue what I was supposed to do there. But even if I didn't make it properly, it was still delicious.

How to Save $10,000 This Year

I first posted this last Jan. (2011)- thought it was worthwhile posting again this year! Also, I mistakenly entered $24.40 in the original post as the amount to save each day-the correct amount is $27.40. 

Yes, you can save (or make--depending on how you look at it!) $10,000 by the end of this year, and it is really pretty easy.

Save $27.40 each day, and after 365 days, you will have saved $10,001 dollars.

Of course, since we are now about 14 days in to Jan., you will need to adjust that savings a bit- but still, you get the gist, right?

And if you save $10 a day, you can still have $3,650.

How about $5 a day? That will give you a nice savings of $1,825.

How to save money each day? Here are a few ideas:

Skip Starbucks--make your own coffee
Skip the take-out lunch--make peanut butter and jelly snadwiches
Make spaghetti 2 times a week--skip the meat
Buy a water filter and drink tap water--skip the bottled waters
Put back one item from your grocery cart each time you shop--and save the co…

Things To Do With Empty Cans of Soup

All of these ideas start with a clean empty soup can with no jagged edges. For some you may want to peel off the labels, others you might just leave the labels on!

1.. Having a picnic? Use empty Campbells soup cans as utensil holders for plastic forks and spoons on the picnic tables. (leave labels on ..adds a colorful unique touch!)

2.. Make a Halloween Decoration. Cover a soup can in black construction paper or fabric. Add some cut out eyes. For wings, color a paper plate black, Cut the plate in half. For each half, cut scalloped edges along one side, then glue "wings" to the side of the "bat can."

And a few more easy ways to recycle empty soup cans:

3. Use a nail and hammer to poke hole sin the bottom of sop cans and use as herb planters. Place a plastic lid under can to prevent rust stains.
4. Make Candlesticks (great tutorial from "Me Making Do")
5. Make a Flower-Shaped Cookie Cutter.
6. Make a Hanukkah Gift out of a soup can.
7. Make a Christmas Lum…
